yeah, high 14s. and no, its not amazingly fast.

but considering his car did 17s stock, i think its a pretty good improvment.

and remember, this is from the focus engine with practically no aftermarket support.

just out of curiosity all motor, how fast is your hatch?

your joking right?

15.3 with just an intake?

what does the stock focus run? high 16s? if you have a 2.3 you might hit mid 16s stock. your not cutting more then a second off your time with an intake. sorry bud.

stock 2.3 is rated at 15.9. with an intake it is possible to hit a 15.3-4 but you would have to be in good driving conditions and also a pretty good driver. But it is doable. When my car was stock it was running 16.5 at palmdale which is not the best conditions at good conditions it would equal to about 16 flat now that im on the east coast with good condition. Intake and exhaust im running 15.4 so i say its possible.
